key stream for us. >> what is next for citi as we head for the finish line here in singapore, and in asia? >> asia is the single most important region for us today. it generates one-third of our global business. again, let us be careful -- every region in the world is important to us. but our position in asia reflects its positioning in the global economy. one of the beliefs is that the center of gravity for the global economy -- the global economy's center of gravity is shifting this way. it does not mean that the u.s. and europe are less important than ever, but with growth rates in asia so much higher, the percentage of the global economy based in asia will rise. the u.s. grows at 3%, asia at 6%. it is arithmetic. as that center of gravity shifts this way, there is more trade, derivatives, economic flows, greater mass of wealth to manage. our business needs to grow in line with that. asia is already important to our presence and deeply rooted in our past. >> singapore, a good place to do business, good place to work? >> singapore is as fine a place to do business as anywhe

of supervisors came together to select an outstanding choice along many outstanding candidates to lead us over the next several years. >> over the past several months when this issue has come up, it had been agonizing. the board has been put into a difficult situation. there are a lot of differences of opinion on how to run the city, how to mass make a decision, who should be in place, 11 people to agree on that is a challenging thing. i think we have done the best we can do in the process, considering the difference of opinions. >> the people of san francisco can now choose their mayor, the direction they want to go. that is why this decision was so appropriate. >> the other big shock is that the moderates seem to have won this round. people thought, progressives have themselves on the board. there is no reason that they will not get together and take a noted leader who is a progressive to be interim mayor, and then stayed there for another term. the great thing about being in term mayor is to get to run as an incumbent. the fact that the progressives could not get together to get somebody in

a note of caution. the same spirit of cooperation and focus that has gotten us to this point with one will be an overwhelming vote i hope is unanimous. we need to keep going so that this isn't a casualty of the back and forth process in the house and senate. the senate played a large role in giving it in the first place. we need to make sure that it is not caught up in the larger dramas that occur around here that we can keep our eye on the ball and fix it. and i do want to say just one brief word about the pay for. it is illusory because it would cost far more than we would ever collect but we have to deal with the rules as they are. there are two proposals. one would tighten eligibility for the health care reform. the other would take away some unnecessary tax benefits to large oil companies that long ago ceased to have any impact on oil exploration or reducing price. but while i actually think the pay for from our side of the aisle dealing with the oil tax adjustment is superior, i think it is a practical matter. we are going to have to do both of these in the months ahead if we ar

us to meet the three-year planning requirement within the context of the five- year financial plan. lastly, there is a host of other cleanup of administrative language and other process seized in the code that we conformed to car practice here. those are explained in the report. the fourth piece of legislation is a resolution whereby the board would establish for the coming cycle, the coming fiscal year and the fiscal year after, allow the free enterprise departments that had been piloting the last two cycles on a rowling basis, and it would allow those addressed departments to prepare a two- year budgets. a two-year appropriation would be adopted by the board of supervisors, with the process in place to drew up the second year of the budget. this is to reduce the administrative burden, and it frees up policymaker time for the bigger picture conversation about the goals and strategies that departments are employing to reach the folks that need their services. we believe that this legislation maintains appropriator board oversight and policy-setting role. we're hoping to use the ent

's not meant to use the cedar flute as a bit of exotica, but what the panelists have been speaking about. it's the use of all of it together is a way of trying to address, hopefully not in a way that homogenizing anything, hopefully not in a way that takes anything away from any of the traditions incorporated within it. we all come from jazz backgrounds, which is inherently about mixing in and of itself. but if you let that start to become homogenized, if you let that start to become blank, then i think you begin to suffer from this idea of cultural invisibility. who is who and what is what? i don't want to lose that in the music, just as the way the authors who formerly so eloquently spoke. that's what i'm trying to do when i put these songs to the. with that, i would like to give you the second arrangement and last song. i was taught pala singing. we tune because we care. i was taught how to sing by a man named dr. barney horner, who is the great grandson of chief john grass from standing rock reservation in south dakota. one of the songs he gave me before he passed on, on indigenous peopl

're not -- not necessarily used to those types of things. so as part of that, when that earthquake occurred, fema put out an advisory and the advisory stated, the key part is that due to overload of cell phone usage, there are reports of cell phone congestion. and fema was asking people to not use their phones, to use texting or other things to allow folks with legitimate problems to get into call 911. and that just kind of plays up the fact of the problems that we have relying on a commercial service for our public safety usage. so bay web would solve a lot of those problems. this is a high-speed data network on the 4-g l.t.e. platform, cutting-edge technology. i'm sure you have seen the commercial. 4-g is the big thing now in commercial wireless technology. it's fast, it's faster than -- than 3-g technology. but the key -- there are several keys that are important for public safety and emergency response. one is, will achieve true inner operability region wide. whether he have one network that will cover the entire ten county bay area. so the devices we purchased in san francisco we know will always wo

warranted. however, u.s. industrial and consumer products going to panama face an average duty of 7%. and u.s. agricultural exports face an average tariff of 15%. implementing this agreement will level the playing field for u.s. exporters by drastically reducing or ending panama's tariff on u.s. goods. most u.s. consumer and industrial products will immediately become duty-free as will half of u.s. farm exports. any remaining tariffs will decrease quickly thereafter. opening panama's market will be a boone for u.s. companies, workers and farmers. the panamanian economy is rapidly growing and is expected to more than double by 2020. panama is already one of the largest markets for some u.s. exporters and service firms. the importance of panama will only grow for these firms and others as we gain greater access to this expanding economy. this is also true for our farmers. whose exports to panama are expected to significantly increase under the agreement. not only will american farmers benefit from lower tariffs into panama, they will also benefit from the removal of nontariff and regu

agencies they may look and go, oh, this cloud is outside the u.s. perhaps i don't want to use it for one of my applications, but i can use it for another one. different agencies and even within an agency you have different needs. so to answer the question, for the cloud today i don't think that you're going to see any classifieded information because that's not included in the profile, and it might be a long time before that's coming. you won't see high-risk systems, systems that could endanger an agency if compromised. but there's a lot of low-risk and moderate-risk systems today that can be moved to the cloud. an organization that is involved in cybersecurity or information that's involved in federal government planning, they may decide to either keep it in house or use it in a cloud within the u.s. whereas an organization or a federal agency that's supporting workers all over the globe may want to use a cloud that's all over the globe recognizing they're making a choice, and they can see the risks they're documents. so i think we'll see low and moderate-risk operations moving. >> host

and saturday night, it would be easier for people to find cabs to and from then use. last, more light. i know we talked about cities, areas where there is a lot of venues packed into a few blocks. they will actually bring in temporary light towers. the last thing is organization. as venues, it is really important that you come together, whether it be in cmac, or your smaller organizations, so you can work together, have one voice to work with city government. >> that is a perfect segue. i was in the group with south of market, bayview. we talked a lot about organization, communication with the police department's. something that i wrote down that i did not even know, if you feel like you need to call the police, you should. if you do not feel at 911 is appropriate, use 553-0123. i did not know that. that is a direct line where you can get an ambulance. we also talked about -- the commander talked about -- your relationship with your police officer. the captain said he intends to start a monthly meeting with the nightclub owners at the station. he does not want security. he wants to meet with

enforcement of the use of buildings, and possible changes use without a review, are you doing something around inspection on how our departments work together to use us, since we are out there? something better, i would say because that requires training as well. >> i would say that is a potential down the line type of thing we could look at. we currently do not use building inspectors as much as we probably could. they like it that way. >> they are use related as opposed to structural. it is the zoning, it is used, it is all of those issues that create problems around land use in san francisco. >> surprisingly, our eyes in the neighborhood do a good job of finding issues. >> and sometimes creating them. >> we have historically had that issue of not working together as well as we could, and i think it is a combination of training and setting up the protocol of working together. >> there is always room for improvement. >> any additional comments? >> certainly from the stakeholders' point of view, communications with planning has improved in the last year. thanks to the new zoning administrator

using public transit. i think there is a certain investment that comes with this. it is an investment you see played out in something like the social security program. the fact that it applies to everyone means that everyone is invested. we want everyone to be invested in public transportation, which is why i believe we need to make this happen. with that, i leave it to you, and respectfully ask for your support. thank you for your patience. i know it is late in the day. thank you to the young people who have come out, and to the parents as well. supervisor avalos: thank you. and i want to thank the commission for working on this resolution and bringing it to us, and of course the supervisor, for bringing this over, and all the youth who are here and not here who worked on this issue. i know it is a citywide issue. i look at the petition sent to us and i see virtually every zip code of san francisco on the petition. i probably can assume it is not just young people, that adults have signed on to the petition, so there are allies supporting young people supporting the idea of free muni

attention. the structure is what the vendors in the area of use that have been there for years without permits, a voter- protected squatters. the issue monday was a result of the sf pd tearing down and breaking our easy-ups. when we went back to pick them up, they were rendered unusable. as the night went on, the sergeant came through at around 10:15. if we talked with him numerous times and had supervisor avalos on the phone at the same time. on numerous occasions, sergeant tom was unaware of who above him had issued the order for him to come down and even to us. he did not have a written statement of what we were being evicted and gave us three minutes to comply. when we ask for a written statement of why we were getting evicted, he said he did not need to present one. i do not believe that is legally acceptable. after he left, the next thing we saw was full riot gear armed police markings -- marching through our camp. i was on the front line. i was one of the first people being knocked over. i had a backpack on and my hands were full of grocery bags. i was not 10 feet back and kicke
